International Statistics on Education


WEFSTAT is the future statistics department of the WEF. It will shortly be available on an own new web page, with a lot of links to statistics on education from all countries of the world.

Since the organization was conceived, our experts noted the lack of a global statistical central, that provides information about education in the world. Technical expertise of the organization will bring together data from the World Bank, United Nations (UNESCO), OECD (Pisa) and national education statistics departments of each country in which the WEF is acting. 

WEFSTAT: short for education statistics, will be a comprehensive education database developed by the Education and Development Data Groups of our organization. The database will compile data from a variety of national and international sources on key education topics and indicators. Its principal features will be:

  • Education Projections
  • The WEF's Education Projects Database
  • Country Profiles
  • Household Surveys

 The Education Projections module will give users an easy access to projections of data on educational attainment, enrolment rates, primary completion, and gender parity. Projections can help to identify countries that are already on a path of adequate growth to reach targets like the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) from those countries where policy change is needed to accelerate growth.

The WEF's Education Projects Database will give users an easy access to information about the education activities, components, and subsectors of The World Education Fund's projects.

The Country Profiles module will bring all of WEFSTAT's data and research on a selected country together into one webpage. The profile will include a variety of education indicators as well as information on country research resources, WEF education projects, and country context.

The Household Surveys module will present data on gender, income and geographic inequalities in education access, progression, attainment, and expenditures. The data will be collected through three types of household surveys: Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), Living Standards Measurement Study (LSMS), and Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS).
